I did not record part II of Inspector Morse - Death of the Self. I would like to know if this episode will be replayed so I can view. I am guessing it was a two hour program with part I and part II immediately following. I didn't realize that. Any chance of someone answering my question. Thanks.

jdegen- Sorry to hear you missed the second half of that episode. Just so you know, we normally rebroadcast our prime-time programming a couple nights later for just this reason. For example, this Morse episode re-aired the following Monday morning at 1. That said, I don't have any immediate plans to re-air the episode. I see that it's on Netflix for what it's worth.

Thanks for taking the time to answer. Always try to check the newspaper for what's on today and record. But must have missed this one. Don't do Netflix. So I guess I well never know who did it. Is there a way I can get an email when any Masterpiece Mystery will air? Old series, new series???
